FAMILY-FRIENDLY WORSHIP SERVICES & MIDWEEK PRAYER MEETING

From May 28 until Labor Day, we enjoy one worship service at 9:15 where we all come together as a family reunion through the Summer season.
 
During the School Year, we enjoy two worship experiences on Sunday mornings. For the early risers, 8:00 and then later in the morning at 10:30. Both services include traditional hymns, readings from the Holy Scriptures, Preaching and Prayers. Children are welcome and included in special ways. At 10:30, we have a choir that sings beautifully with Special Music.

Eat, Stay, and Pray—Community Prayer Service, Wednesdays, 5:45 to 6:15 p.m. This is a year-round ecumenical prayer opportunity in the Sanctuary. A chance to pray to God. To listen for the Spirit of God. To be together in the hope of Jesus Christ. It will be open to our community meal guests and available to all the folks at Trinity who are not able to make it to church on Sunday mornings…and for anyone who wants a chance to pray in community during the week. If Sunday morning worship is a chance to get closer to God, then check it out and see what God can do on Wednesday nights!

 

“Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at his disposition, and listening to his voice in the depth of our hearts.” 

Jubilee Prayer for April Composed by the Rev. Michaela Youngson, the Methodist Church of Britain, for use by The United Methodist Church throughout the world.

When everything was dark
and it seemed that the sun would never shine again,
your love broke through.

Your love was too strong,
too wide, too deep
for death to hold.

The sparks cast by your love
dance and spread
and burst forth with resurrection light.

Gracious God,
We praise you for the light of new life
made possible through Jesus.
We praise you for the light of new life
that shone on the first witnesses of resurrection.
We praise you for the light of new life
that continues to shine in our hearts today.

We pray that the Easter light of life, hope and joy,
will live in us each day;
and that we will be bearers of that light
into the lives of others. Amen.

 
 
Jubilee Prayer    March  Abba, we have so much conflict today. The world is pulling in so many directions and mostly toward selfish desires and dead ends. Father, we pray that you will raise men up to serve in your army. Raise men with the courage to answer your call, the courage to put on your armor, and the determination to complete the journey you have laid out for us. Father, give these men the wisdom to listen to your commands to forgive and to love. Challenge us, Father, to step out in faith in whatever direction you see fit to fulfill our parts in your design.

Father, soften our hearts towards others, as we are drawn closer to you, our God and King, as time brings us further into the Lenten season. Help us to find it within ourselves to reflect your Son to those around us. Father, be our guide so that we can guide others. Protect us, Lord, so that we can stand for those who have no one to protect them. Father, although nothing we do can make us deserving of your grace, help us to accept it fully; help us to show it to your people as fully as we can. We pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.

 
Come and join us for an active and vibrant celebration of faith and worship of our Lord through the wonderful music of the Trinity Adult Choir!

Perched behind the Sanctuary
 
Young children and babies can enjoy some space, while parents can still enjoy our worship service in our overflow room, to the back and above the sanctuary. This is also where you are invited to take part in the technical aspect of our worship if that is where your talent and interests lie, with audio equipment, our computer support and PowerPoint slide show, which accompany our services, and other modern enhancements to the worship experience
